The symbolic equipment

J 69

Beach yolley on a hot summer day – is there any symbolism in these sunglasses.?

Wonder if there’s symbolism hidden in that the female players are much less clothed.?

Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names,
they want to divorce themselves from their predecessors
*Jim Morrison – american musician (The Doors)*

Every generation wants to be better than all previous generations.
At any time the present generation is jealous of the next generation.

Nevertheless plenty of symbolism survive generation after generation.
Much symbolism is adopted by others over time.
Much comes from the celts, vikings or other even more ancient  tribal cultures.
Also present religious as well as non-religious symbolism
such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Ramadan and so on are adopted traditions
even Halloween is dated before than pumpkins and religions came into action.

Wonder where the sunglasses came from.?

12 tanker om “The symbolic equipment

  1. A very interesting question! Do you know when they were first introduced? What’s with the naked audience, or was it you that stripped them in Photoshop? 😉 Takk Drake! I knew you would not make an empty promise 😀

      When I was a kid we lived next to an old man who had been a fighter pilot during World War One – he told at that time that they smoke-colored the glasses in their helmets – sunglasses as we know them today are known from the early 1910s – further back in history so it is known that chinese judges in the 1200s used black flaps hidding their eyes so they could see the accused in the eyes but the accused couldn’t see the judge’s eyes – further back so it is said that the roman emperor Nero used thin slices of emerald in front of his eyes when he watched gladiator fighting – there should have been a thin lard in the slices of the smaragd.

      So glad you enjoyed this post, really do appreciate… 🙂

      The naked audience are just half naked – it vwas a very hot sommer day last year close to the spanish-french border in the town of Grussian – a beach town close to the city of Narbonne where I actually lived for a while years ago… 🙂
